Re: How do you brick your phone?

If you brick it screwing with the ROM, they can tell and it will not be covered under warranty...this is also the reason that the insurance went up from $50 to $100 on smartphones for the rest of us...

Re: How do you brick your phone?

Let me see if I get this. You want to brick your phone and get a new one under your insurance plan because it's all scratched up and doesn't look pretty any more? WTF???? You do the same thing with a car (i.e torch it or report it stolen to the insurance co and get the pay off) and we call it insurance fraud and you go to jail. I very much doubt that would happen with a PPC, but I like to think our members have a little more integrity than that.
